Subject: RE: Medical Design Online, feature on ebXML


The sector of the health care industry that this article and this site
targets is the medical products supply chain....not patient administration.
Thus the HIPAA regulations do not apply to supply chain message exchanges.

TO:  MAE team

Rachel Foerster is featured in Medical Design Online, a VerticalNet site,
talking about ebXML and the health care industry's noticable lack of
participation.  See

One possible reason for the health care world's lack of participation is the
legal requirement for health care providers and payers to comply with
administrative simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996. HIPAA's guidelines call for

the little guys.  While ebXML might be the right thing to do, HIPAA is the

Just my two Yen from someone who has hung around too many HIPAA meetings.  I
